Pesty sailboats in General Discussion Posted October 21, 2011 I believe that regardless what kind of boat that you operate you are financially responsible for any damages that your boat or your wake may cause. I am one of the boat operators who doesn't give a hoot. You pull in front of me if I hit you and your boat flips then mabey you should not have pulled in front of me. I love the guys who have planers all over the place too. If you cut me off and I snip a planer you won't do it again. Don't be cussing at me if you pull in front I am not moving so you better have your speed up. I missed a blow boat last year by a couple of feet after he cut in front of me while he was under power. When he got done cussing at me I calmly told him next time I will hit you.
